    12 Sep 17 Mozart Die Zauberflöte
    Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

    “Best of all was Siobhan Stagg, a Pamina who seemed completely suited to the role, releasing a stream of beautiful sound when needed, and with the heft and passion to make ‘Die Wahrheit’ the hinge of the entire drama.”
    Roger Parker, Opera, October 2017

    “… Peter meets his match in Stagg’s animated and expressive use of the text, sensitive, stylish phrasing and beautifully clear timbre. Far from being rescued by Tamino, it is Pamina who rescues her prince by taking his hand and leading him through the trials.”
    Anna Picard, The Times, 14 September 2017

    “[Stagg] really seems to mean every word. Hers is a warm, lithe soprano, and one that captures the character’s girlishness.”
    Hannah Nepil, Financial Times, 13 September 2017

    “Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg was pure delight in the role to which she brought a deliciously clear voice and fine acting skills.”
    William Hartson, Express, 15 September 2017

    “Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg offers an attractively sung Pamina.
    George Hall, The Stage, 13 September 2017

    “Two stand-out performances anchor this Flute. As the heroine Pamina, Siobhan Stagg is a touching and musically delicious discovery – although those of us fortunate to have heard her jump-in account of Rossi’s Orpheus would expect nothing less. The young Australian is the next big thing.”
    Mark Valencia, What’sOnStage, 13 September 2017

    “Siobhan Stagg’s Pamina was an assertive heroine, but also affecting in her Act Two misery, floating high notes with the utmost control.”
    Bernard Hughes, The Arts Desk, 13 September 2017

    “Siobhan Stagg gave a glorious performance as Pamina. It was a heartfelt portrayal of great poise with a voice of sensitive clear timbre and a flawless technique. Her Act II aria Ach, ich fühl’s received rapturous applause, and deservedly so.”
    Alistair Jackson, Australian Book Review, 20 September 2017

    “Siobhan Stagg’s Pamina puts heart and soul into ‘Ach, ich fühl’s’ … also deeply moving, with her impassioned, yet controlled, singing … Siobhan Stagg makes an extremely impressive Royal Opera main stage debut, bringing her sweet soprano to the fore in her very committed and astutely observed performance.”
    Sam Smith, MusicOMH, 17 September 2017

    “[Stagg] gave a strong Pamina throughout the evening. The sound of her voice was rich and moved with ease, giving an extremely heartfelt performance of Pamina’s suicide aria.”
    John Beckett, Schmopera, 13 September 2017

    15 Jun 17 Haydn Creation
    Melbourne Symphony Orchestra/Sir Andrew Davis

    “Siobhan Stagg an unalloyed success in Melbourne Symphony Orchestra recital…well-suited to the roles of both Gabriel and Eve, she demonstrated unerring accuracy in the composer’s tensile upper-line arcs and occasional rapid ornamental flourishes, as well as having a creamy fullness of timbre that gave weight and interest to her lower passages.”
    Clive O’Connell, The Sydney Morning Herald, 16 June 2017

    “A key focus-point of the oratorio is, of course, its archangels Uriel, Gabriel, and Raphael, performed by [Andrew] Staples, [Siobhan] Stagg, and [Neal] Davies respectively… All performed convincingly – their duets and trios being the most compelling moments…”
    Ben Wilkie, Limelight Magazine, 16 June 2017

    “Siobhan Stagg’s Gabriel was exquisite –her luminous tone throughout the range was equally at ease with florid passagework and longer cantabile melodies, and her diction was always clear. Her serene appearance added to the effect.”
    Margaret Arnold, Classic Melbourne, 20 June 2017

    31 Aug 16 Zemlinsky Lyric Symphony
    BBC Symphony Orchestra/Simone Young at the BBC Proms

    “…the Zemlinsky was revelatory… Soprano Siobhan Stagg and baritone Christopher Maltman gave thrilling voice to Tagore’s transcendent poems, set by a composer who has languished too long in the shadows of Mahler and Berg. (Simone) Young oscillated sublimely between metaphysical twin poles, pivoting male and female around Zemlinsky’s central ‘Sprich zu mir, Geliebte’; this a near narcotic rapture at the music’s yearning heart.”
    Steph Power, Independent, 06 September 2016

    “While Stagg’s is not an enormous voice, there’s a blade to its purity that helped it project in this challenging space, carrying text and emotion to the back of the hall. The emotional arc of her delivery – from the innocent intensity of “Mutter, der junge Prinz” to the chilly withdrawal of “Vollende denn das letzte Lied” – was the thread on which the songs were threaded, a guiding constant through this extraordinary, excessive work.”
    Alexandra Coghlan, The Arts Desk, 01 September 2016

    “…aided here by two notable soloists, Christopher Maltman… and Siobhan Stagg, a vivid story-teller with a potent stage presence… Particularly compelling was the fourth section given to the soprano – “Speak to me, my love! Tell me in words what you sang” – which was total wonderment, spellbinding…”
    Colin Anderson, Classical Source, 31 August 2016

    “Baritone Christopher Maltman and soprano Siobhan Stagg sang seven songs of lost love and acceptance. Wagner reverberated, Mahler echoed but respectful Zemlinsky kept his identity as the singers, without breaks, sang the seven songs tracing their feelings from joy to painful separation. There was something strangely satisfying in the work’s grandeur …”
    Jeffery Taylor, Express, 04 September 20176
